Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday said he would direct the state’s Director General of Police to look into the matter related to the death of a suspended police inspector and conduct an inquiry if required. Amidst these allegations, the Chief Minister said that the matter is related to “posting by paying money”. After a purported video surfaced on social media, the main opposition parties Congress and JD(S) have demanded a judicial and high-level inquiry into the death.
In the video, State Municipal Administration Minister M. T. B. Nagraj was reportedly heard telling police officials that the suspended inspector had died under pressure, as he had paid a huge amount for his current posting.
Speaking to reporters here, Chief Minister Bommai said, “Our DG (Director General of Police) was not in the city, he returned last night. Today I will instruct them to collect all the information and if anything is found then investigation should be done. We will not show any hesitation in it.”
Of. R. Police personnel attached to Puram police station Nandisha H.L. was recently suspended for dereliction of duty. He died of a heart attack on 27 October.
Referring to the alleged claims made by the minister, the opposition parties have accused the Bommai-led government of fixing the price of each posting and indulging in the “posting for money” scam.
